wildbeercat (356) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2013
22floz/650ml bottle into a weizen glass; served cold. Aroma: Lots of yeast. A little spice. Appearance: Super hazy yellow-orange body with a moderate, but dissipating, white head. Taste: Wow! Lots of flavor in this one. Lots of cloves. There’s definitely some banana too, and a little tartness to round it out. So much flavor!! Palate: Light-medium body, short finish that ends on spice. Overall: Such a fantastic hefe. It is bursting at the seams with wonderful flavors.

Pours a cloudy pale straw with a flimsy white head that is true to style. Smells great: hay, floral, banana, bubblegum... Taste is very well balanced with a nod to sour. Clean fresh palate with just a little stickiness. Slight coppery aftertaste mouthfeel? It’s a good hef. My favorite offering by JJ to date?

Sampled on draught in Las Vegas. Hazy golden colour and a taste dominated by cloves and banana. Quite refreshing, but not especially characterful. Not bad - quite German-tasting, actually.

BelgianBeerGal (3776) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Draught sample at Aces & Ales. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a small white head. Massive aroma of banana, plus a little spice lurking in the background. The flavour is more banana and a little bubble gum. Very light, but maybe focusing on lowering the calorie count also pulled some of the flavour complexity out. Refreshing above everything else.
